One World: Together at Home spurred sales gains for the songs performed as part of the event. On April 18, 2020, the songs performed on the show sold more than 12,000 digital downloads—a gain of 735% versus April 17, 2020. The most notable sellers from the two-hour television special were Taylor Swift's "Soon You'll Get Better", Maluma's "Carnaval" and Kacey Musgraves' "Rainbow", as they together accounted for 42% of the total song sales generated by the show. The songs performed during the pre-show broadcast generated 6,000 in sales—up 75% from April 17, 2020.
On April 19, it was reported that the special raised nearly $128 million for coronavirus health care workers. Raising $127 million "puts it on par with the other legendary fundraiser, Live Aid, as the highest grossing charity concert in history," says Forbes. Instead of private individuals, funds were raised from corporations and institutions such as Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Rockefeller Foundation.
Guinness World Records announced on May 22 that the global broadcast special set records for the most musical acts to perform at a remote music festival and the most money raised for charity by a remote music festival. Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, said in a statement: "The One World: Together at Home special was an extraordinary response to an extraordinary situation. It demonstrates vividly how the power of music can unite us all and help us through challenging times. It's an honor to be able to officially recognize this unforgettable, 'I-Was-There' event as a record-breaker. Congratulations - and thank you - to everyone involved.” 
One World: Together at Home inspired Japanese rock band Luna Sea to design and host a similar event in Japan. Music Aid Fest. ~For Post Pandemic~ aired on Fuji TV One on May 31, 2020 and featured live remotely recorded performances by over 25 artists, including Miyavi, Koda Kumi, Ellegarden, Char and Glim Spanky, to elicit monetary donations to support medical workers and others on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.
